The hamsters have gone to meet their maker, so we decided to explore the notion of adopting a kitten.
Thankfully, we found a place that will let you bring a cat back if things don't work out. But we are sincerely hoping we can keep her.
We will get the kitten Monday. Her name is Sprite, a gray and white fur ball. When we had cats before, we had to find other homes for them, on account of the fact they were peeing on the carpet and we had a baby ready to crawl.
I would like to say for the record that I was not altogether on board with the adopt a kitty idea. I don't want our son to get attached to a pet we can't keep. I'm hoping for the best--that things will be different -- that we can be better pet owners than we were the first time.
